Usain Bolt had one job to do going into the Olympics and that was to defend his title as the world’s fastest man. While he has since proven himself after dominating in the men’s 100m, 200m and the 4x100m relay, the track star REALLY took it to the next level when he celebrated like a champion.
Hamming it up for the crowd, the media and the viewers back home, some may call Bolt’s celebratory regime a bit over the top. But hey, if you’ve just proven yourself to be THIS naturally gifted, I guess it’s better to savour the moment while you’re at it.
Though many of us may never get the chance to run as fast as Usain Bolt, we all know how good it feels to win. So if you’re ever presented with the wonderful opportunity of winning the biggest competition of your life (an eating contest, a Super Smash Bros. tournament, etc.), here’s a step-by-step guide to celebrate just like the world’s fastest man on the planet.
1. Kiss the track (or the ground you’re standing on)
2. Celebratory push-ups (although it’s not like you’ve just proven your greatness)
Charlie Sheen and Snoop Dogg are releasing their single ‘Winning’ on Wednesday, reports CTV.
The duo’s track is set to be aired on radio on Tuesday ahead of its release at midnight, and all proceeds from downloads of the song will go to Sheen’s ‘Torpedos Against Tornados’ foundation, set up to help victims of the recent tornadoes which devastated Tuscaloosa last month.
Rob Patterson, a former ‘Korn’ guitarist, co-wrote the track and said: “Look, it’s a good song. But I honestly don’t want people to take it seriously. It’s meant to be fun and entertaining.”
Explaining the lyrical content of the track, Charlie told E! News: “Well, the genesis of the song is about, you know, winning. It’s just everything in life.”
“I think Snoop did a really good job at kind of encapsulating the whole vibe of, you know, the movement.”
Rob was the person who asked Snoop to come into the studio and record a rap for the track, and was surprised by how enthusiastic and quickly Snoop got his part ready after coming over to Charlie’s home studio.
Rob added: “He arrived at 9 p.m. and was out by 11 pm. We were all shocked by how quickly and how professionally he was able to just bang it out.”
The track itself stars off with former ‘Batwatch’ actress Carmen Electra saying “Oh, good evening, Mr. Sheen. Are you winning?” Snoop then interjects, proclaiming “No, he’s smokin’ right now!”
The track will be available in both a family friendly version and a more hardcore rap version, complete with expletives, from iTunes.
This is too much! I can’t even comprehend – wow. Well, it seems like every idiotic idea these days is backed up with the ‘for charity’ excuse, so once again, I can’t say anything bad. Please… support?
Perez Hilton reports that the decision came from the Sheen camp after Charlie was booed off the stage at the Michigan show by angry fans who are now trying to get their money back. Security at the Chicago Theatre have been told to strictly enforce all security and crowd control policies in effect for Charlie’s safety.
One Sheen fan in Detroit claims that the Violent Torpedo of Truth show was “the worst thing I’ve ever witnessed,” while hoards more are fighting for a refund.
Well come on, were you expecting Mona Lisa Smile?
Scalp your Sheen tickets while you still can!
After being fired off of Two and a Half Men by Warner Brothers, Charlie Sheen is suing WB for $100,000,000. And rather than keep the matters private, Sheen has decided to entertain us even more by asking for a public trial in a public courthouse! Yay!
According to TMZ, Sheen’s request follows his claim that WB is trying to “force the case into private arbitration because the judges who preside over these arbitrations do lots of business with Warner Bros.” Because everyone is involved in a conspiracy theory against Charlie Sheen – duh! Winning!
I wonder if you get free passes to the trial when you buy tickets to his upcoming tour…or will this be a PREMIUM premium ticket package? If he’s charging $750 to meet him, imagine what he could charge people to attend the trial…hm.
It might be paranoia, or it might be all that Tiger Blood he’s on, but one thing’s for sure – Charlie will make sure it is never a dull moment for Team Sheen! And for reasons that will never be answerable, we will be behind him every step of the way.
TMZ is reporting that “the deal is for Charlie to perform on 21 dates. He’ll get 85% of the profits, with Live Nation getting the remaining 15%. Charlie’s cut is projected to average between $250,000 – $275,000 for each show.”
Sheen will also make a percentage of profits from after-party appearances and merchandising vendors, of which apparently 200,000 items have already been shipped.
All in all, it adds up to about $7 million A MONTH for Sheen, for as long as he continues to perform the one hour and fifteen minute “comedy” routine.
“Winning” t-shirts, anyone?
According to Perez Hilton, Sheen is now selling premium tickets for his Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option tour, where people will “hear the REAL story from the Warlock.” Can’t wait!
What do these premium goodies award you, one might ask? “One premium reserved ticket located within the first 10 rows of the theater, an exclusive meet-and-greet with Charlie, a personal photograph with the star, an autographed 8-by-10 photo, a numbered limited-edition tour poster and an official meet-and-greet laminate,” writes Perez. Now that sounds like $750 well spent! Too bad I spent all my money on Justin Bieber meet and greets…
“Tickets for Charlie’s tour are selling out quicker than expected and everyone wants to meet Charlie. He could charge twice this for a meet-and-greet!” a source told Life & Style.
I don’t know about charging twice, but at the rate the tickets are going, that source good just be right! What has the world come to?
Are you planning on catching Sheen on his sharing-of-tiger-blooded-human-knowledge tour? Would you pay $750 to meet him? I’ll be the front row – see you there!
Charlie Sheen’s upcoming mini-tour to Chicago and Detroit has sold out in under 18 minutes, says TMZ.
The show, called “My Violent Torpedo of Truth,” set a Ticketmaster record this weekend as tickets were snapped up like hotter-than-hotcakes. Sheen’s camp is looking into adding more dates to the tour, as well as some additional stops in new cities.
Sheen’s website also claims that $1 from every ticket sold will be donated to the Red Cross to help victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
$1?! That’s a little skimpy considering some tickets are going for nearly 100 times that price!
This can’t be doing anything good for Sheen’s delusional huge ego… In fact, we’re sick of him already.
If Charlie Sheen comes to your city, will you be going to see him?
Warner Brothers have hired celebrity lawyers Ron Olsen and John Spiegel to handle Charlie Sheen’s contract and the future of his show, Two and a Half Men. The studio was forced to make the move after the loudmouth ex-star formally threatened a lawsuit upon them.
Though no official legal documentation has surfaced yet, Perez Hilton reports that Olsen and Spiegel have recently been in communication with Sheen’s lawyer regarding his claims that the studio was negligent when it came to Sheen’s partying ways, but overreacted as soon as Chuck Lorre’s name was dragged into the picture.
Olsen and Spiegel are big-time legal guys! We see Charlie Sheen’s star crashing very soon if he’s not more choosy with his words.
As if that’s gonna happen anytime soon!
Jimmy Fallon is generally a hit and miss comedian, but his Charlie Sheen impression is pretty spot on. It makes us want to buy “Winning” by Charlie Sheen.
After several bizarre interviews with Charlie Sheen went viral last week, the star has now jumped on the Twitter bandwagon. Twitter has become one of the most popular social media devices in the last few years, and it seems that celebrities have caught on to the trend with everyone from Roger Ebert to Kim Kardashian tweeting frequently throughout the day.
However, many of the celebrity tweets are rather unexciting to read, but Sheen is an exception. People.com reports that after Sheen joined Twitter on Tuesday night, his number of followers exploded. Over 1,003,00 people-due to increase even more-are now following the Sheenster.
Sheen is apparently planning his comeback and Twitter just might do the trick. Clearly the bad press and hilarious interviews are helping Sheen’s case. Though he is obviously a little out of his mind, his interviews are surprisingly articulate and his tweets are no different.
Sheen’s Twitter tagline: Born Small… Now Huge… Winning… Bring it..! (unemployed winner…)
Tweeted:Face it folks, you just feel better when you say it. #WINNING
Let’s hope Sheen can manage to stay sober and continue bringing unintentional comedy to the public.
